Many of us manage projects as part of our regular job responsibilities and have developed project management skills and experience. Project management as a discipline is gaining recognition in libraries as an important mechanism to deliver efficient and improved project results. Increasingly, libraries are hiring dedicated staff, with knowledge of project management best practices to manage high-impact projects. During this e-Forum we will draw on practical experience to discuss challenges of managing projects in libraries, look at techniques and tools that could be easily applied by anyone managing a project, and talk about ways to implement project management in technical and collection services.
In this e-Forum, attendees will:
define project management as a discipline and describe how it could be applied in libraries
discuss project management challenges and solutions particular to the areas of technical and collection services work
share project management advice and resources
